Last month, we had 17 rumors, and we’ve updated this month’s list with two new rumors and a few new updates to existing rumors, too.
Check out what we’ve seen and heard about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8:
This is allegedly the Galaxy S8.

Two YouTube videos allegedly show Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone with rounded corners instead of the sharp corners we’ve seen on previous Galaxy S smartphones.
The recently announced LG G6 has similarly rounded corners. LG claims they help make the screen more durable against cracks, and they match the rounded corners of the phone’s design.
Both Galaxy S8 models might have curved screens, but some rumors say there will be a flat-screened model.
Sources to the Korea Herald claim both Galaxy S8 models will have curved screens, and there won’t be a flat-screened model.
However, this particular rumor is a mixed bag, as the reputable SamMobile claims Samsung will indeed release a flat-screened model.

There are a couple conflicting rumors surrounding the screen size of the upcoming Galaxy smartphones from Samsung, which I’ll call the Galaxy S8 from now on.
One set of rumors claim the smaller model will have a 5.1-inch screen while the larger model will have a 5.5-inch screen, according to “industry sources” that spoke with the Korea Herald. However, the latest leaks suggest otherwise. GSM Arena allegedly obtained details about the upcoming Galaxy phones’ dimensions form a case maker, and we could see the smaller Galaxy S8 model come with a large 5.7-inch screen.
The larger Galaxy S8 “Plus,” as it’s being called, could have a huge 6.2-inch screen, according to gadgets leaker Evan Blass.
